In autumn, we ditch the pastel/brights that we wore to death in summer and go for much darker tones. This is the same with make-up, we tend to wear less in the summer to avoid it melting down our face. But now we can dare to wear a little more and just hope it doesn't rain! With this in mind, I created a quick, more everyday face look that I predict I will be recreated many times over the next couple of months.
First of all is, of cause, concealer. I would be lost without Collection's Lasting Perfection concealer as, as every blogger on the planet will tell you, it is the best. I put this under the eyes and over any spots and blemishes.
Next up is eyes. Here I used the new Bourjois Intense Smoky eyeshadow and liner set in Rose Twiste (61). I really like these as they come with two eyeshadows which really compliment each other and easily create a really nice eyeshadow effect. I've not quite got the hang of the liner yet so I haven't used it in this look. I've covered the eyelid with the lighter shade and blended the darker shade into the crease. Using Soap & Glory's Super Cat liquid eyeliner pen, I added a winged line. The flicks at the corner of the eyes is probably the most daring I ever go with make-up as its so hard to get right. If you can get the perfect winged eyeliner every time, I am jealous. Add some if Rimmel's Retro Glam mascara, a slight obsession of mine at the moment and the eyes are completed.
Finally, what make-up look is complete without lipstick? My favourite lip colour is red and this look is no exception. I wanted a darker red for autumn/winter time and Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate 107 is the perfect shade. It finishes off the look perfectly.
So there you go, my autumn make-up look. (I did say it was a quick one!) what are you favourite make-up products for autumn/winter time? Let me know in the comments below.
